ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a South Carolina homeowner has shot and killed a man he says was trying to force his way into his home.

Police said several men came to an Anderson home twice Monday night, asking for the homeowner’s son both times.

Police told news outlets the homeowner told investigators during the second visit he shot a man who tried to force his way into home while he was in the doorway talking to someone else.

The coroner’s office says Alijah Tpau Moultrie-Fuller was shot in the chest and died at the scene.

Police are still investigating. No charges have been filed.
